The DURIP grant was used to develop an efficient high temperature laboratory with high precision instruments to make deformation and load measurements in high temperature materials including advanced composites. The laboratory has been successfully developed in Mechanical Engineering Department at Wayne State University under the direction of Professor Golam Newaz - who was the PI of the program. Based on the capability developed, the laboratory can be considered a national resource as extensive capabilities have been integrated with existing facilities in Advanced Composites Research Laboratory at Wayne State University. High temperature testing capabilities include evaluation of mechanical and thermomechanical capabilities up to 2200 F with an induction heating system that is interfaced with modern MTS 810 servohydraulic equipment. Polymeric, ceramic and metal matrix composites including superalloys with thermal barrier coatings can be tested for material properties, fatigue and fracture performance.
